Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

Car cuts out while driving,starts again but stoppage more freq.

I had this problem 2yrs ago and took it to a dealer. They said it was either a bad drive shaft sensor or a bad crank shaft sensor. I don't remember which. They fixed it and it was ok until recently when it started doing the same thing again. The ''check engine light'' was on both times, for a long time before the stoppage started. Is there anyway to tell which sensor is bad myself.

There is a way, first thing to do is unhook neg. battery cable lieve it off for about 15 to 20 minutes this will erase any codes that are stored in the computer and light will go off, than hook cable back up, start car and drive until light comes on again, when light comes on take to autozone and have it scaned, that should tell you witch one it is, or what the problem is.

To test a altinator the easy way without special tools, start the car, remove the negative battery cable. If it stays running, the altinator is good. I had the same type of problems. It's probably your ignition coil/coils going bad. Try replacing it and cleaning inside distributer cap & rotor.

I can guarantee your car keeps cutting off because there is a problem with your crank sensor. I have a '04 maxima SE and the day I paid my car off it did the exact same thing, it cut off then cranked back up a short while later and when I took it to the dealer there was a problem with the crank sensor. You might wanna check that and get it replaced soon...it's cheaper if u dont do it at the dealer tho

if you turn the key and nothing happens chances are that the starter is going out. I have a 98 also. Here is the problem there becomes a couple of bad spots on the starter and that is when it doesn't do anything. If you change it your self be prepaired to get really dirty. You must remove the exaust pipe comming from the manifold and if you can take off the bolts at your first union joint on the exaust great. If not you have to cut the bolts and then the starter will come right out and the new one goes in very easy. If you take it to a dealer you could also have them check the relay also.

is it just cutting out, or sputtering and struggling before it cuts out. It sounds like it definitely has to do with the fuel system. It could be bad fuel injectors, bad fuel rail, or a bad fuel pump.

I will never buy a mazda again. They have bad transmissions and engines. What is worse they use the same parts as Ford. How in the world do you combine a japanese and american parts into one engine? It keeps breaking down, thats what happens. I would ride it out since you are already gettin an engine but if you haven't purchased it, sell it and put that money towards another car, the dealer has used you like a gold digger.

I think that your crank angle sensor failed. Is the check engine light on?? if so, scan it and get code. If the code is P0335, than you need new crank angle sensor. Nissan has been having some problems with those even on other Nissan products. (Altima, Pathfinder and so on) Good luck.
